Mitrovica Poem (2000)

by | Nov 19, 2007 | Clowns Without Borders

this winter I will be combing through journals and writings from Clowns Without Borders Expeditions, and posting some of them here. Here is one:


Rom Camp. Skenderaj Mitrovica, Kosovo. (2000)
(photo is the bus cemetery next to the camp, by Phillipe Martinez)

Foraging for firewood.

Brilliant face blazen in winter’s sun.
Defiant teeth glimmer
conquerer’s grin.
Barebacked heroe’s pose
For the camera,
One foot upon his prize
A tree branch 4 times
his 6 year old size.
